Hey everyone,

I'm wondering if my custom built PC(1 1/2 years old) is viable for 3d modeling on programs like Maya. Basically, I need to know if I should upgrade or not, and if so, what to upgrade to, or do I need to built a whole new rig.

My Build
Mother Board: GIGABYTE GA-790XTA
Processor : AMD Phenom II Black Edition X4 955
Video Card : HIS Radeon HD 5850 (Cypress Pro)
Harddrive : WD Black 1Tb
Power : Antec 750W
OS : Windows 7 Home

Thanks!

I think it will work for now, but I would get a Phenom ii x6 and maybe a Professional graphic card if you dont care about gaming. What ram you got?

Then stay with the 5850 and just upgrade to Phenom ii x6. Also you could upgrade to SSD to make Maya load models faster, I think.
